I have a HP Pavilion laptop with an AMD Radeon HD 6400M graphic card. When I upgraded from 12.04 to 12.10 all was fine and dandy, until I plugged in my TV via HDMI-cable. After a reboot, Unity stopped working and I was getting all sorts of gpu-related error messages.
Well, I consulted Google and while trying to fix this, I kind of went haywire, adding different repositories to install homebrewed solutions, upgrading and downgrading drivers from AMD:s support page, tinkering with settings and so on. It didn't help.
I finally removed all the mentioned repositories, purged all fglrx files and tried to remove all added drivers, but got some dkpg errors.
The situation right now: Unity doesn't work, but Gnome do. Under 'additional drivers', I have the "Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] nee ATI: Caicos [Radeon HD 6400M/7400M Series]" driver. I've tried both X.org, fglrx and fglrx-updates, but still, no Unity.
I've given up trying to fix this myself, I'd rather wait for a working update.
Is there a way to completely reset the graphic drivers to installation default, or do I have to re-install Ubuntu 12.10?
(and before anyone mentions it, NO, I don't want to use Gnome, I like Unity and want it to work.)
